    I have a ListView control that lists all actors in a db. Should u notice an actor missing, one should click add button, open anew window, add the new actor, and on clicking close window, I need to refresh the original ListView and should see the new entry. How can I do that?

    Hi Osemollie,

    Once that new actor is added to the database, refresh the total data in the listview and use the following code.

    Here T is the Actor Name you want to find.  LVDetails is the ListView.  (My assumption is actor names are available in the list view first column not in list sub items.  if you are using other columns then use this S = L.ListSubItems(I).Text where "I" is the index of the list sub item.

                Dim L As ListItem, T As String, S as String
                For Each L In LVDetails.ListItems
                    S = L.Text
                    If S = T Then
                        L.Selected = True
                        Exit For
                    End If
                Next L

    I think this will help.
